We were hiking with Amanda and Elan and had only planned 5 miles, so getting in 8 was a surprise! It seemed to go SO fast!
The trail is mostly this-skirts the lake and undulates a bit.
It crosses a few feeder streams that can be quite pretty when it's rained enough to have them flowing well.
Getting to the bridge is a good turn around spot, there are a few wide flat rocks along the water for a picnic snack and it's pretty!
This is a lovely walk, it's not hard, it can be tailored for any length by just turning around and there's water the whole way, so it's visually pleasing.
I would not get drinking water, even if treated, along this trail just because of so many farms and houses in the area. I know that's ironic because it's the drinking water reservoir for Cullman! But I always try my best to avoid potential agriculture runoff.
I am hopeful they will open the lake up for kayaking or even swimming, I love to swim!
Some camping here would be awesome, it's 21 miles, so a backpacking option could be done. I am looking forward to seeing this project develop.
